Whilst climbing in preparation to drop five parachutists, the engine failed at a height of 3,000 ft. The pilot landed back on Runway 28 at Strathallen Airfield, but the aircraft overran the end of the runway, travelling through a fence and hedge before coming to a stop. The pilot and parachutists were uninjured. The number five and six piston connecting rods were found to have failed and damaged the crankcase allowing engine oil to escape.
